DETROIT As the state works to get every registered voter an absentee ballot application, concerns and claims have been swirling around the conversation of vote-by-mail.
There's no evidence that voter fraud happens in incidents of allowing citizens to vote by mail, which they have a right to do in the state of Michigan, Sec.
In states like CO, WA, OR and Utah which have moved to almost entirely vote by mail, absentee fraud has been extremely rare.
In Michigan, there have only been 5 convictions for absentee ballot fraud since 2007, according to the Conservative leaning Heritage Foundation.
An increase in absentee votes will drastically alter how ballots are normally counted, likely taking more time and manpower.
